In this second Author Talk in our three part Indigenous Author Series, Robertson will discuss his memoir, Black Water. Learn how the book came to be, the story behind it, and the process of writing it.
"An honest and moving memoir that builds an emotional crescendo . . . .A richly revealing account that is revealing yet respectful." - Galleries West
“Black Water is a deeply moving book about “[t]he experiences of one generation felt by the next, and the next after that… engrained in us through the stories we pass down as gifts.” David A. Robertson writes of kinship and his father with enormous care, heart, and courage.” - David Chariandy, acclaimed author of Brother and I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You
